THE Pekin (China) correspondent of the London Times thinks that Cores is a pear that is ripening fast for Russia, chiefly because of her maltreatment by China. He adds: We are constantly, hen ring of the wonderful astuteness of the Chi.iese, but I have nevfer'seieu any'sign of it except in the! ways-of petty schoolboy* deceptions and small "treacheries.* Their politics ore fatuous and fatalistic without , rational basis and without any grasp of the future, or real, .comprehensions., of the significance of 'their own'ot their neighbors' doings.

THE Coriemaugh.flood is recalled to mind by the deaih of Chalmers L.

It was said that he shot a fellow cutting off a dead woman's ringer to jjet the ring upon it,—if he did, it was. a justifiable act/ for the mere rumor of the deed turned back' many a thief who was capable of such outrages. There is no doubt that he transcended the law in that emergency, but he "was the right man in the right place, and he was recognized. Mr. Dick was only 34 years old at his-death,, and yet-he was a leading lawyer, counsel at Johnstown for the Pennsylvania railroad,- and hud been mayor of Johnstown... ; . . '' , THE Utah commission report disproves the claims of the Mormons or their apologists that the practice and defense of polygamy are decreasing among thorn. The church of Latter Day Saints refuses in any way tj frown upon it, the number of convictions for plural marriages or unlawful cohabitations among the Mormons is increasing, and it is notic'-ible that those tried or convicted for this offense refuse to ['Set pledge themselves to refrain from a repe- try V*" tition or continuance of it.

A Moxlcnn Stmko Story, > The old traveler was in the storj telling mood and spun this yarn i : ;, . - , "Lying in a deep ravine in the moun' tains cf Santa Clara county, Cut.,-is the little Village of Alinaden, So narrow is the gulch that only one street is possible, and down the length of this ripples- a stream of limpid water, fresh frommoun- tain snows. Flowers throng along the roadsides, and the roses fling themselves over the sides of the adobe houses. "High upon tho mountain is the en' trance to the quicksilver mines, from which the village takes its' name. Up the keen slope, in the sultry ( mornings, the miners take their way, in heavy-footed bands, nrrd plunge into the bowels of the earth. Besides the quicksilver there-tire other products — Mexican children and rattlesnakes. It is necessary to set uharp- pointed stones on the threshold of each house to keep out the serpents. "One day a Mexican mother sat her little dusky daughter on the floor, _and. .wont out to bA&e her bread in the brick oven, wbi:h several of the neighbors _used in common. She WHS gone some time and when she came back slje found her _baby • surrounded with tho beautiful reptiles- beautiful and hideous things which- filled the ronrn. D "Paralyzed with terror, she could not speak or move. And'the little one was in ecstacy. It gave vent to rapturous iries. Its black eyes danced with happiness. She played with the glittering things, and let th-m enwrap her. Not one of them even tried to harm her. They treated her with something like reverence. . "At last, with n-screain of desperation, the mother snatched up her protesting baby and called for help. The big miner drove'dut.the intruders amid the lamentn- tionsof the baby. And afterward, from childhood to maidenhood, this girl could wander nt will through the canyon, without fear or molestation from any reptile, and the miners crossed themselves when they saw her, and said that she bore a charmed life." In Paris, that great city where all one's needs and caprices are catered to, there are professions for women entirely unknown in this country. And one is the professional packer. When you think of going away: is not one of your sighs as to how you shall get all your belongings in your trunk? When you reach your destination don't you find them creased, mussed, and, .if possible, what a tiny woman near me calls "in smithorcoiisV" . Well, tbe packer cornes in, you tell her" what you want to take away, and then let her dp her work Skirts are skillfull folded, bodices have sheets of tissue paper laid between them, and the sleeves are stuffed to shape with it; slippers have their toes filled with raw cotton so they do not reach their destination flattened out; and hats and bonnets have tapes attached to them so that they may be pinned to the box i-j tray and will not move until you are ready to lift them out. This is a busy work for which a busy or a rich woman will pay well, nnd a, woman who becomes expert at it can in the going uwjy tim • mysterious amount known as "a tidy little sum" very easily. Tne packer comes to the house' takes off her bodice and assumes a loose jacket, and then she is ready for her work. Who among the many who are asking for something for n woman to do will start in this profession? Jt is a work easily learned, and offers a variety that must appeal to every woman. Neither is' it irksome; hence a profession which offers more 'than fhe usual advantages for woman's skill,—• Ladies' Home Journal. .FLOODS HAISED HAVOC. WaUrhsi Impmlml tho Progreit ofClTlli- KUtitm In Chiim. WASHINGTON, Sept. 23.—The department of state has received from the Ij. S. iiegation at Pekin, China, a report relative to the recent heavy floods. The report says tbe Hoods are the most serious ever known. An aiea of three thousand miles and a population of several millions is affected -by them. Many people were drowned, and tens of thousands are living on charity. One result of the floods may have far reaching consequences—it is the 'fear of Lutai, which is a point on the railroad TrOin Rongkn to Tongshan, that the railway embankment has .been destroyed by the people for miles. It' wo° alleged that the embankment wiis damaged by water and flooded the country. It is supposed the general in command ut Lutiii either instigated or connived tliu.-c proceedings in which tliu soldiers took part, A very serioii.H'fenture of tlio.r > iu>u is the supineness of Viceroy Li. lie lias done notning to prevent these lawless proceedings. Tho Tongsban colliery is stopped, thrc» thousand men urn out of employment and the operation of tho railroad is suspended, Tliir destruction wa« wanton and unnecessary. All these proceedings indicate an anti-railroad excitement, which may rp- suit in postponing indefinitely any further railroad enterprises in China. J.AIU TO 1UCST.

It is situated on the northern edge of the timber Skirting the historic Hickory Creek, made famous by the genial hospitality and bravery of the' citizens, along. its banks during thfl early settlement bf the country. The fort lies in a romantic and lonely bat decidedly picturesque spot neat the side of a deeply shaded ravine. Forest trees, which have grown up since its abandonment) surround it on all sides. The embankments are overgrown with grasses, weeds, and brush, which Wily Serve to tflake the place more desolate and time-honored. Its existence has been nettHy forgotten and few of the residents, even in the irnmediato vicinity, are aware of its historic importance, while many are altogether 1 ignorant of the tnem-' uries which envelop the. epdt. The embankments are of earth and at oils time were probably Several feet in height, although the action of the (-lerntmts has reduced them to alien dn extent* that in places they are scarcely pareeptibl6( while in olIiersY.iey ore less than eighteen inches in height.

A resolution was also adopted unseating Mr. Klloit (dem.) tho ancient fort clearly shows that it was built at least one and perhaps two centuries ago, : How it came' to bo built there and what purpose it served have been qUestions i of longstanding to those aware of its existence. A few facts may throw some light on the subject. • '••..-.. The pioneef tradets, trappers, and fix- nlorers formed portages from the head of Lake Joiiet to Lake Michigan as early as the seventeenth oentiiry, It was several years before 1700 .when a party consisting of Jacques, MarqUette, Joiiet, La Sallo, and several other nuFoionarius, explorers, and traders passed through the vicinity, slopping for several days at Mount Joiiet, a few miles below the fort. Since that time until the beginning of the present century large numbers of voyageurs and traders have continually passed back and forth, bartering blankets, bad whisky, knickknacks, and pallry glittering ornaments for the valuable furs with which the ignorant natives only too eagerly parted. The country at that time abounded in good game. Buffalo were caught in herds, being valued highly on account of their hides. There were also wolves, foxes, otter, mink, etc., while deer and smaller game were to be found at every turn. Having loft the head of Luke Joiiet, which at most seasons of tho year was the head of canoe navigation on the Des- plains river, the homeward bound voy- accrs transported their cargoes to Lake Michigan, sometimes 'going _ up Hickory oreek, and reackinu the lake in the vicinity of the Calumet or further north at the mouth of tho Chicago river. Others followed the Desplaius still further, leaving it near the summit for the lake. OIUQIN AND O1UKCT OK TIIK FOJIT Although tho French had fewer difficulties in their dealings with the natives than t':e people of any other country, yet it was only natural that occasional disputes should arise. Some often treated tho Inditing unfairly, and all whitemen were held to account. In time tho Indians retaliated, and put into operation their principle that the only good white man is tho dead white man. It was not long before it became necessary to take some measures for defense, and fortifications were erected at short distance* along tint trading route from the river lo the lake. The fort in question was situated between tho hunting grounds and the hike and on the trail which was usually followed in traveling between the two. A mora convenient location could hardly have been made. It probably alio served another purpose than that of a purely defensive refuge. Situated as it was it became an excellect place for the distribution of supplies. Those who spent their lives in trapping and hunting found it a convenient place in which to pass the winter. Others passing to and from the hunting grounds .were accustomed to reaJi the fort by nightfall, and often enjoyed the hospitality of its occupants for several days. Rude dwellings and store-houses were erected near it and at certain times oE the year busy scenes were enacted. Could one nave looked in at that time he might have seen trappers arranging their "catches," while in the background social Indans looked on with eyes full of wonder and curiosity, occasionally coming cautiously forward, offering furs and game in ox- change f"r the onmments which they so much coveted and loved to ndorn thorn- selves with to a most absurd degree. Such was no doubt the origin and use of the ancient Joiiet fort, of which nothing but the bare outline now remains. Tho traders continued their dcalint's with tho Indians until tho beginning of the present century, when the permanent settlement of the country by the white men began and it then became no longer profitable The trappers prolonged their warfare on ganio for many years after, and oven now a few old eettlera are to be found in this locality who live by hunting and trapping. T1IACRH Ol' AN fNDIAN VltiLAOB. Thi! early settlers rulatothat many yuars ago there was tin Indian village of considerable size a short distance from thu site of the fort. 'An occasional tomahawk or flint arrowhsu.l lias been picked up in the vicinity, but that is HIP only evidence now obtainable beyond the statement of the settlers to provo the existence of this Indian village. It may huv« been nothing more than their winter headquarters or n place for holding councils in times of Indian warfare as well as of jjwce. It situated somewhero in the timber north of Hickory Creek and about four miles east of Joiiet. Near tho site of this extinct village iii u piece o£ timber owned by N. H. Higin- bothain. of Chicago, is a mineral spring of excellent quality. It has been said that the Indians seldom bury their dead, vet not fur from here, on tho furui of William Gougur, there is siiicl to bo seen what appears to have bcun an Indian burial ground.

After breakfast they went at it niminitnd played until hobn, at Which hour Hanks reminded Lincoln that they had not pulled any fodder.

It is not at nil likely that the following story wil) cause any unpleasant feelings between any of the Lincoln and Grigsbys now living. • The feud died out long ago. Ono of the Grigsby boys married Lincoln's only sisters the other Grigsby married some one else. The match which made him fl. brother-in-law did not suit Abraham Lincoln. There was bad family blood at the s(art,'and the family relation row is one that no diplomacy ever settles. You may think yon have for given the fellow who married your _. sister and abused her. but yon never do. You KO 'gunning for your slejp. In the good old days when a couple married it was the proper thing ty h.ivo at the hooie of tho bridegroom or bin people what was called an "infair." That's a dear old word! The best blood of this country used. it. * The rock-bound, wily- back, royal-striped, full-blown, yard-wide aristocracy of this county indulged in tho ''Infair." It was the feast after the wedding when all fends were made up between thosn attending— when the family met the other half way and spat on the slate — that's not eleirant but it seems to (it — and rubbed out. Tho "infair'' was a glorious event. The way tney do it to-day is to issue a card, "at-home," and put in a date. But there isn't any "cherry bounce," or "apple toddy, "or "bride's cake" at an "at-home." There isn't any music of the fiddle, no lljinc feet, no rush of bloo'd, no hectic cheeks, no ploitsure- wearied limbs, no sleeping until noon in tho "nt-homo." People who were not, invitdd lo the "in- fair" in theg. o. d, understood most emphatically that the newly inado couple did not desire to keep up their acquaintance. Ko invitations to thn infair meant latchstring any more. The Lincolns were not invited to the Grifrsby infairs. Young Lincoln had the same streak of human nature in his composition that runs in the average inun. As people say in this advanced and electric ago, if they are disposed to be slnnuy, "Lincoln got hot under the collar." ITo cnme from Kentucky, and all Kentuckians resent a slight as quickly ns a dog does a tin can when it is atlached^to his tail. Mr. Lincoln wrote following this infair, what he called tho "Chronicles" It was in the style of tho Old Testament, Book of Chronicles, and showed up the Grigsby tril» in a way that would have made them thn laughing stock of the country. Having indulged in this revenge Lincoln took tho manuscript and put it where bo knew yonn if Grigsby, tho one who hrtd married his sister, would get it. Theae chronicles were found by the Grigsbys, a. n o put thorn away, as they supposed w'l? r ^ . n , eve would ever see them again. Hut* this they were mistaken, as will ba se.on further on. A man in Bockford who has read them repeated tho following, which he says was appended to the chronicles and are composed by Lincoln : Chnrlle nnd lieiiboii nm innrrled, Mothor well plouuid with tl«> mulch; " Thn CBB I' "'fix hili), unit Honh wan afrnlu Tirol Urn file was no soft 'wouldn't hutch. VICTOllY KIM THK IIOU8B OK LINCOLN. Tho insult of the chronicles infuriated young 1 Grigfiby — Abo's brother-in-law — and tho rosult was u challenge. Not a duel with weapons, Kentucky stylo, but a knockdown, a scratch and punch, with- a ring and seconds. Young Grigsby was "spoiling for alight " as they say in these parts, but ho said Abu was too big; that the match would be unequal. Lincoln had a stepbrother, John Johnson, who was about Grigsby's sine, and he took up the cbnllfiiiKn in behn If of the Lincoln side of the house. John Gentry, a resident before alluded U>, was a witness at this fight. Ho gave the Tribune correspondent the following account of the affair: "The ring was pitched in Warrink County, a short distance from the < 1 1 Lincoln homestead. That was for thop r- post) of evading any investigation by tlio grand jury. The light was well advertised, 1 don't mean in the newspapers, for there were no newspapers in those days; but it was advertised by talk. Every towpship iii the county was represented, 1 reckon. I know thero was a big cro,vd present. Abo Lincoln was there, and he was mad because ho couldn't get anybody to fight him, Auron Stanridge was John Johnson's secontl and William Whitney appeared for Grigsby, The underbrusfi had been cleared away. The contestants went at it without gloves, I don't mind how many rounds were fought, but every ono \vas a knockdown for somebody. There was no such [foolishness as thero is in this age. 1 romomber that the seconds came pretty nigli coming together two or three times. Finally Grigsby gava opt, and ho was asked if ho had enough, and ho said .yen. That wound up the Lincoln- Clripsby fend. It Jeff the Lincolns on top." "plinONICJ.llis" \VR1U! I'OUNP. Although, according to the story, it was generally known that Lincoln hud revenged himself" upon " the Griirsbys by stignatizing them in his chronicles the neighbors had -not read the papers because no onu had seen them. Years after, when the Grigsby house was, being rebuilt. H'e boss carpenter, wto WUH pouted on Uiu feud ana its outcome, found secreted under one eud of a rafter 1} bundle of manuscript. The writing was dim with'age, but not too dim for the carpenter to read. As he read he became interested and his hummer fell from his hand. Finally he said to his assistant in a solemn tone: •-.'•••' "Bill, here's a part of the Bible that's iievw been printed." r ' ; Tho story traveled about the neighborhood and created curious comment, until tho Griusbys got thu manuscript in their poHBOssion again, and it in tho opinion in this count y that they didn't put the papers under another rafter, ious detriaerit.
